Lynch Syndrome and Colon Cancer

OncoLink
Last Modified: May 7, 2012

Question:

Due to Lynch Syndrome, I had my colon removed and a complete hysterectomy. 3 tumors were found in my colon, 1 in my uterus. Since then my adrenal glans have shut down (Addison's) and I have been diagnosed with R/A. Are the 3 somehow connected? Is there any way to treat me as a whole?
